last year's drought in texas, and man-made climate change. a new study found that man-made heat made the texas drought roughly 20 times more likely. >> there definitely is a connection between greenhouse gases and extreme weather. we're seeing very strong evidence to suggest that not all, but many of the extremes that we're seeing around the planet are being enhanced by greenhouse gases. >> and every day in this record setting heat takes more of jeff fischer's crop and his livelihood away. >> it's stressful. it's stressful on myself and my family my father and i. this is a family farm. and we've watched it go down and down and down. >> reporter: noaa scientists meanwhile, are not saying that climate change causes any one specific drought like the one in illinois. they are saying the science is good enough now, they can lay odds on the connection. lee and erica? >> wyatt andrews, thank you. >>> security for this month's london olympics is a massive operation as you can imagine. on tuesday some residents who found themselves on the frontlines of olympic security
consistently focused our resources accordingly. secure communities was launched in harris county, texas, in october of 2008. we have come a long, long way since that time. secure communities is now deployed in every state of the union and fully deployed in every state save alabama and illinois. put another way, secure communities has been deployed to 3,074 of the jurisdictions in the united states. a remarkable achievement in just under four years. i am confident we will complete full deployment in the near future starting with the remaining jurisdictions in alabama when the 11 circuit rules on impending litigation over immigration law. for the first time in our nation's history, we can uniformly identify individuals who are here unlawfully and are subsequently arrested for a crime provided their fingerprints are on file with the fbi and dhs. this fingerprint sharing between the fbi and dhs, itself mandated by congress in 2002, now permits i.c.e. to identify large numbers of criminal offenders subject to removal as well as individuals who have been previously removed or have an outstand
. similarly, if i have a poor person who can qualify and in texas it's very difficult because the state undergovernor perry's mainly about trying to prevent anyone from getting health care, but if they manage to qualify for benefits in the state of texas for health care with a sick family, and they choose not to seek a higher wage job in order to maintain that eligibility for medicaid, that also would appear to be not an indication of a lack of willingness to work, but of an informed decision to try to provide health care protection. we attempted to respond to both types of informed decisions. with the affordable health care act. and over time want the availability, particularly the expansion of access for poor people to health care remove any cliff or disincentive to work to create a new jobs and new businesses and new economic opportunities. >> yes, congressman, i think you're adding precisely the kind of nuance that i tried to reflect in my testimony, which must be brought to these criticisms by my colleagues here on the panel of the implicit tax rates and the affordable care act. th
